    The second is a bit loaded, no? You could also say "The American people have chosen to elect Obama time and again" except I would think time and again are more than twice – mplungjan Aug 7 '13 at 6:27

  • @mplungjan I agree that "time and again" implies more than twice, and probably also more than thrice. – TrevorD Aug 7 '13 at 10:44
